This vintage arrives in the glass as a gorgeous hue of dark garnet. An expansive mix of blackberry, dark chocolate, raspberry, pie crust, vanilla bean and tobacco greets the nose. On the palate, there’s ample grace and complexity in the form of an even mouthfeel and notes of cherry and blackberry. The tannins are dusty and subtly sweet, providing the backbone for a layered body, medium in weight. The lengthy finish is accented by touches of brown sugar cocoa powder and vanilla. Ever-drinkable upon release, the wine will improve markedly over the next few years and will cellar beautifully for a decade.

/ 750ml

This wine is drawn from the winery’s original estate founding Merlot blocks planted by the McClellan family in the early 1980s. 2017 marks the 30th year of making Merlot from these same vines.

This vintage shows dark red-black color and enticing aromas of blackberry, dried earth, sweet oak spice and light savory tones. The palate is soft with generous black fruits accentuated by vanilla, floral and spice, dusty earth, and finishing with both bright sweet fruit and firm polished tannins.
